Fowlis Wester

Crieff, Perthshire
Stone Circles; Standing Stone; Cairn
Also known as Moor of Ardoch

Fowlis Wester is a tiny village that is in an area heaving with ancient sites: cup-and-ring marked rocky outcrops, hill forts, stone circles, standing stones, Pictish sculpted stones, Roman forts, and more.

On a hill above the village are two stone circles. If you use Aubrey Burl's gazeteer A Guide to the Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany then this might be a site that you never visit as Mr Burl obviously had a pretty miserable day when he was here. I thought it was a splendid place.

The eastern circle consists of nine stones (once twelve) around the remains of a cairn. One of the kerb stones of the cairn is cu-marked. One of the large outer stones still stands.

The stones of the western circle have all fallen. Outside the circle is a very large prostrate stone.
